The facts, there was NO violence and NO chairs thrown

Last edited Tue May 17, 2016, 06:50 PM - Edit history (2)

This is a fact.

Now, subsequent there were threatening phone calls and so on, which are very bad, potentially violent.


I have been subsequently corrected, it is NOT a fact, as I dont have any proof that it happened still, but it is not a fact until I can absolutely prove it didnt happen.



BTW, I fully believe BoB types are capable of violence.

I just didnt see it.

Some hearsay doesno good for anyone. Furthermore, this whole Nevada issue could have been prevented had Roberta Lange done her job competently. Preventing the stand up vote, she incited the crowd. She might as well have yelled, "Fire". So I hope she loses her job to someone who is honest and trustworthy.

9. There's video of someone needing medical attention.

There's video of someone picking up a chair, with intent to throw it (he wasn't stretching) until someone else stopped him. And there's plenty of video of what can only be described as an angry mob.

I don't know who all those different journals spoke to, but apparently it was enough for all of them to decide to publish it. And Jon Ralston, respected reporter, said he saw it. It's hard to dismiss all of that simply because you haven't seen a video of an actual airborne chair.

The game of giving token non-factual concessions doesn't work. Hard core Bernie people believe that there's been election fraud in half the states that Bernie lost. Are we just going to say "fine, yeah, it's true, Hillary intentionally knocked people off voter registrations all over the country" in the hope that that will placate them?

who had to be physically subdued. People claiming they saw chairs thrown. Those who claim that video evidence is needed under these circumstances seem to be the ones in denial. I don't know if chairs were thrown because I wasn't there, but it sure doesn't seem impossible to me, given the evidence that exists.

In this case, there is nothing but scuttlebutt from a campaign that has claimed 'that's not Bernie in those photos' and 'Ronald Reagan was the fist AIDS Activist' among other false claims.

cellphone cameras rolling and yet

no images of violence, no victim(s), no one arrested or detained (?)

They don't want to talk about the rule change, the bogus voice vote or the stripping of 64 delegates to win by 32 so they focus on this chair fantasy.

Does anyone really believe that someone can can assault someone else (or even a chair) in a Caesar's casino, in view of hundreds of people, security, cameras and facial ID and just walk out? It defies belief.

35. And the threats are a crime, and there should be a record of the calls, etc. so police should be

involved.

And the individuals responsible should ABSOLUTELY be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and in the process we can find out who they are...


and which campaign- if any- they are affiliated with.

Oregon?

Gee, I wonder who internal polling says is going to win there.

45. President Obama just condemned the violence.

You think the WH didn't verify that there was violence before he made a statement?

62. He used those words?

Here is what was said and not directly by my wonderful President



“The president on a number of occasions has spoken out against violence and has certainly said a political dispute like this can never be used to justify violence or a threat of violence,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.



So he left open a threat, vs actual.

He is right again,

77. They were careful to say violence or THREAT of...So that makes more sense to me.

There appears to have been a clear threat of violence after the meeting with phone calls.

Although they could have been made by Karl Rove operatives trying to recreate Chicago 1968

Beware of that always

82. I think one reporter reported something and the rest repeat it, that is usually how it works.

The point I was trying to make, was more of trying to get people to calm the fuck down, relax, regroup, etc.

I appreciate people like you who are willing to talk reasonably.

I am a Bernie voter who will pivot on a dime the instant he loses if he does and I will then support Hillary big time.

My fear is many wont do that.

If Bernie wins I dont have the same fear from Hillary supporters.

Bernie can still win, by the way so he should be allowed to stay till the end.

What I dont want is a contested convention, which will almost certainly result in 1968 all over again.

should he become the nominee. I don't like him, but literally any Democrat, or honestly the ficus plant in the corner of this room, is better than any Republican. We are in accord.

56. This whole conversation is out of control

 

The Hillary team plans on bringing the party together so as to rely on Bernie's voters.
And yet her people don't seem to have gotten the message. The DNC and DWS seem to be working directly against their candidate in this regard.
Wonder how Hillary got those high negative numbers?
As for the phone calls, no one knows who made the call and it is not fair to make assumptions.
And then there is Wendell Pierce - but no - keep walking - nothing here to see. Right.

59. Video of "chair throwing" --

 

Second video down on the site, action starts at approximately 4.40. As you will see, at NO TIME was a chair "thrown".

http://heavy.com/news/2016/05/nevada-democratic-convention-raw-video-videos-full-replay-sanders-delegates-election-fraud-jason-llanes-periscope-youtube/

Also, the video that Mother Jones used to illustrate a "fight broke out" at the convention shows no such thing, only someone lying on the ground near the stage barrier. No evidence of any physical altercation taking place.



There were cameras EVERYWHERE at this event -- I have yet to see ANY video of this alleged violence that took place.

As to the social media and personal messages that are being shown, I have no idea if those are INDEED Sanders supporters but, if they are, there is no place for that kind of behavior.

That being said there was some dude with a chair over his head, that looked a bit violent.

102. Guilty of a thought crime!

Because holding a chair in one's hands is the exact equivalent of throwing it at someone.

I'll remember that the next time someone in a restaurant moves a chair.

Hopefully it will be in a "stand your ground" state where I can defend myself from such acts of violence by pulling out my glock and shooting the person holding the chair.

Really, you need to sign up with the nearest police force given your uncanny and supernatural ability to perceive violent acts before they happen.

86. The absence of video evidence

 

in a room containing hundreds, possibly thousands of people, including the press, with I would guess about half possessing phones with video cameras is extraordinary. In this case, the absence of evidence is damned compelling.

Also, the obligation to provide evidence is upon the person/people making the claim.

All I have seen is video of someone who is on the floor and a call for medical assistance, and one guy picking up a chair, holding it over his head, then having the chair taken from him.

Where are the police reports? Where are the 911 calls?

80. If phone calls of that nature were placed, I expect to see police reports and arrests as that

 

is criminal, to threaten people. This is not appropriate to deal with criminal matters outside the proper channels, to go to the press instead of the police, to seek to smear a group of persons rather than to seek to apprehend the criminals.

88. It's just fucking unbelievable

There's video all over the place - people with cell phones etc and there is NO video of chairs etc being thrown, but The press, Lange and the White House claim that there was violence even though police was there and didn't have to make a move. and who do DUets believe? The press, Lange and the White House and NOT the evidence...

And Lange comes out with recordings of threatening voicemail who she claims were from Bernie supporters without any evidence. If they are so concerned, the authorities should trace the calls and start arresting people.

and having to have people talk you out of that isn't showing violence?

Really?
Go try that in a restaurant to go try that at the police station with an officer I bet you'd be arrested for assault.
